Kylie and Aljur, who went to designer AJ Javier for their gown and barong, were one of the first couples to show off their interpretation of the ball's theme of "Modern Filpiniana." Kylie's gown was romantic and completing the mood was Aljur holding her baby bump. Kylie is having another baby boy in a few months' time.
It was in August when Kylie announced she was expecting during a birthday video for her son, Alas, who turned two that month. A few days later, the actress told GMA’s 24 Oras that it was a very different pregnancy compared to her experience when carrying Alas and revealed she was battling perinatal depression. She recalled that when she was pregnant with Alas, she was always in a jolly mood, and that the depression set in only after her son was born.
